Morteza Khakshoor: Manifestations

Morteza Khakshoor: Manifestations

Lives and works in Santa Ana, California

Men and their behaviors are the main pictorial motifs in Morteza’s work, influenced by feelings of being both frightened and yet fascinated by men. The works are manifestations of pure curiosity in a species, like people who are interested in studying ants, for instance. History is another present element in his work and often, is a very wide range that includes factual and none-factual past events, ancient Middle-Eastern and Mesopotamian literature and mythology, pre-revolutionary Iran, and anything in between.
